Stay away! Even at this relatively low (by NZ standards) price, it is not worth it. Honestly, if you want to save yourself from a bad experience, do not stay at this Motel. No wonder this place charges you beforehand. I don't think anyone would stay and pay if they did not. Believe me, we are not fussy travelers. As...

Roomy two story with outdoor spa in private setting. Very clean and comfortable for 5. Wifi was $10 for 24 hours. Great friendly front guest reception. Helpful with tourist tips and ideas. Quiet location and excellent spot to get to shops and restaurants. Great value for money.

By far the most revolting place I have ever stayed. Stains everywhere, and mould in the bathroom. The website stated there was sky. There wasn't. There was also meant to be a fridge. There wasn't. And a spa was also advertised. Not in our room. I bought up the fact there was no fridge, apparently our room didn't have one....

Had a great stay at Gwendoline Motel, Rotorua. It's on a Fenton St which is the main road out of Rotorua towards Taupo & Hamilton. Fenton St is lined with accommodation, you can't go wrong. Situated in walking distance to the Thermal Maori Village (Hot Springs) & a 10min drive to the Redwood Tree Forest & tree walk. You can...

My family and I stayed here for just one night and that was more than enough. What a disgusting place, it could be so nice if they put some care into it but clearly they haven't. They had a nice spa outside but thats where the positivity ended. There were big visible stains on the carpet and two on the...

This was by far the worst experience we have ever had and we have travelled through NZ, Australia, the U.K., Europe, Asia, Africa,North and South America. The advertising on the website is deceptive to say the least and the reason they require payment up front is because they know that if you see/smell the room first you'll run a mile....

The motel is so old and very very dirty. No lounge furniture, uncomfortable beds, the kitchen and bathroom especially dirty. No outside area just an old covered spa. Overpriced. Dire need of an upgrade. Would not recommend. Lovely staff though.

I was shown a dank room with holes in the walls. Moved to a room with wall paper cello taped up. Too horrible to explain all. Obviously no money has been spent updating and mending this place. Not even cheap to stay at! Stay away!

My son checked in at 2pm along with my 2 other children. He immediately rang me at work and explained that the room was filthy, the bathroom had scum and stains all over it with a huge rat hole that was filled with newspaper, the lady at reception couldn't speak clear english, the spa bath wasn't working and the room...
